It has been four months and eight days (to be exact) since you left us/me without a word. You suddenly left us/me hanging. We still got so many things to discuss. The realization was not even halfway yet. We were still at the verge of strategizing plans and you know very well I badly needed you for that. You were my strength and power. I depended so much on you.
When problems flooded me in terms of dealing with people, you readily told me “bayaan mo lang sila..maglulubay din mga yan.” True to your word, I just let them be and they seem to tire being hard on me. On interpreting rules and laws, you readily shared your knowledge and even sat with me explaining those unexplainable rules and laws. Time did not matter when I asked you something (or everything, makulit ako e). You didn’t mind sitting for hours discussing things (but of course with your fave drink – Colt).
When I had family issues, you shared your time and knowledge about the sacredness of family and threw brotherly advice my way. When you’re not in a good mood and throw one of your mood swings to me, I fought back and that resulted to weeks of cold treatment (from me). I even reached to the point of forgetting you were my supervisor.
But you were the best mentor I ever had. I will never forget everything you taught me, all the memories I shared with you, and all the help you’ve given me and my kids. It makes me happy to know that you are now resting, free from any problems that you had in life. See you on the other side, Sec W.
